Open to anyone using the mental health services throughout Cork City and county, the project aims to encourage creative activity, raise the profile of the artists, increase awareness of talents, and use art as a bridge between artists and the wider community. In total, 87 paintings go on display.

“Any of the artists will tell you this exhibition empowers them and gives them a sense of purpose,” says Brendan McCarthy, development manager at Cork Mental Health Foundation. (Examiner) >
